Session Kitchen’s Monday Family Feasts

posted by:

Ever find yourself in a food rut? Ever face the start of a week so BORED with all your old standby meal choices that you can barely even THINK about going to the grocery store and feeding your family the same old dishes and listening to your them groan at your efforts?

Yeah, me either.

But if I DID (ahem), I would bust out of that rut by taking the family to Session Kitchen on a Monday night.

Mondays are better than ever at Session Kitchen

My kids were grumpy with the time change on the evening my husband and I decided to take them out for a very reasonably priced $45 family meal. My son (12) declared he wanted only a Big Mac and my daughter (14) was determined not to look up from her phone appendage.

All that changed, though, when the kids realized they were getting a peek into that mysterious phenomenon they were usually excluded from. This, we told them, was like Date Night — but for the family.session kitchen barSession Kitchen recently debuted a a brand new program catering to families who want a fun, easy and delicious weeknight dinner option. “The feedback has been great and we’re so excited to share the news with the Mile High Mamas,” says Manager and Event Coordinator Amy Rapisarda. “Chef Scott Parker, also a dad himself, will be changing the menu monthly according to seasonal offerings.”

My advice? Make sure you get to Session Kitchen on a Monday in March, when the Monday night menu features tacos. Just reading the menu will make your mouth water — Droolsville. And when the food arrives? Snarftown.

The slaw and the chayote squash pico? Perfect complements to the meats. (Vegetarian options are available on the regular menu, such as kale quinoa salad, crispy brussels sprouts and multiple cheese plate selections.)

In case you’re not able to get to Session Kitchen in the next few weeks for tacos, don’t despair. Chef Scott Parker revealed to us that he’s cooking up something equally scrumptious for April — possibly noodles (check Session Kitchen’s Facebook Page for updates). We’re already planning our return trip then.

For dessert we were offered cronuts (an add-on to the family meal), some of them cherry and some of them chocolate. Oh, my. Some sensations defy words.

Our daughter declared Session Kitchen her new favorite place. Our son gave Session high praise — he deemed it better than a Big Mac. My husband and I waddled out, happily.

The Monday Funday Family Feast is available every Monday at Session Kitchen and feeds a group of 4-5 people for $45 including mocktails for the kids.Larger groups can also be accommodated.
